30 November will see up to three million public sector workers, representing 28 trade unions, taking part in the biggest strike for 85 years. Public sector workers are striking to stop the government’s attacks on their pension rights, which mean they will have to pay more for their pensions, work longer and then retire on lower pensions. However, the strike is also crucial to the fight against all ConDem cuts in public services. This is understood by private sector workers and reflected in the huge popularity of the strike, with 77% of the population supporting it.

Anger is building against this government as workers face pay cuts and job losses. Young people face a future of being unemployed, priced out of higher education and having no chance of getting their own home. Our NHS is under attack and this government has made cruel cuts to disabled people, families who can no longer afford childcare and young people who have lost their youth clubs and the chance to attend Further Education Colleges due to the attacks on EMA. More services are due to be cut next year.

Support your local public sector workers!

We look forward to seeing you
